Overheads in internal administration are pain. The question is how to get rid of them? The answer is change! Technology has open up the gate to change in a way we only could have dreamed about before. People that embrace change and do it swipe the floor with the competition. Change is collaboration between suppliers, manufacturers and dealers. We all have to work together. It will not work otherwise.
Are you tired of pressing “I agree” multiple times and over and over again to make your computer up to date? I am! How it works today is not sustainable. We need to seek a more transparent model where this happens automatically. Today I have at least 20 different programs that require frequent attention because of updates… and this number is growing. If I have 100 programs that require the same attention I will be busy pressing “I agree” instead of actually doing something! We need a mechanism where we as users can say; “I trust this software from this supplier and just do the updates without disturbing me”!
- Managers that lead
- Sales people that learn design and practice design
- Designers that learn sales and practice sales
In software development one of the most difficult tasks are quality assurance (QA). The number of possible combinations of hardware and software are huge. And then we add version numbers which makes the task to escalate from hard to scary. Even if something works for one combination it does not mean that it works for the other. Wow! Something has to be done here? I am not kidding! We need to find the needle in the haystack! There are many great software developers and innovators in this world and most of them are friendly and love to do good things. I wish that 2010 deliver improved QA possibilities for our software heroes.
I really like the idea of having my work available on any device wherever I go at anytime. That’s an “I want it all and I want it now” approach to work. Instant sharing of information would make things easier and faster. Cloud Computing creates transparency in our collaborative life. So, let’s go for it… or are we not ready? What do you think?
The enemy is the comfort zone. People and organizations in the comfort zone are doomed to extinction. I salute you because you love the challenge zone! You embrace initiative, innovation, and excellence in delivery. Hail to the brave that everyday wake up in the challenge zone and love it. Ok, we need to relax in periods but that’s just for reflection and decision making on what challenges you want to focus on when time is ready. The cure against comfort is to think “surprise”. Don’t be lazy. Don’t think it’s hard. Don’t be caught in the comfort zone because you think you can’t do it. Surprise yourself, surprise your friends, surprise your partner, and surprise the world by delivering something that is better than ever thought about or even thought was possible. That’s staying out of the comfort zone! That’s having fun working with the future today!
I often hear that we can’t help because PGC can’t handle a specific type of product or system. This is not right! You should always have an “everything is possible” mindset when you think about PGC. Remember that PGC is flexible and dynamic because it adapts to your reality. PGC is not based on a static standard. It uses a formal language to express your needs and what you tell and train PGC to do can be distributed to all your points of interest in the world instantly.
So, if you already use PGC or are thinking about starting to use it, always consider to contact us to discuss your problems, thoughts and ideas. We are here to help and we love working with you. Don’t think it’s not possible!
I do not like it when I hear, “it does not work”, “we can’t do it”, “will never happen”, “too difficult”, and the worst of the worst is “it’s impossible”. Do you have the same problem? This world is full of possibilities and talented people… nothing is impossible! We should live and breathe in the challenge zone at all time. That’s our obligation. Ok, enjoy the comfort zone a few days but make sure that you get out of it in time! Now it’s time to explore the unknown and climb some mountains. I hope you join me!
Traditionally the graphics card has been to the benefit for gamers. Graphics card manufacturers and the gaming industry have pushed the development to the extreme so we today have more computing power in the graphic card than in the main computer. This is great and it’s time for us outside the gaming industry to leverage from this development.
- Faster graphics. More 2D and 3D components/objects in your project.
- Real-time rendering. Photo-realistic images instantly shown on the screen while you work with your project.
- Compatibility. Not all graphics card will function properly with your computer and your applications. How do we suppose to know those things? We are not gamers?
- Graphics card drivers. Old or even the latest graphics card driver can make your application to malfunction. How do we suppose to know those things?
One thing is for sure, the graphic card power is here and we better start using it. I am thrilled by the possibilities!
I currently got comments regarding our new website that was more or less pointing out that we are showing too much. “Your competition can see how your product work!”. That’s right but is that a problem? The website is for our existing and future end-users, clients, partners, developers and employees. The competition is welcome to have a look and of course they could contact us if they are interested in collaboration. Why’s that? Protection will not drive innovation! We believe that being on the move all the time is the best protection. So what you see today will be improved tomorrow. Our goal is to improve costly and time consuming processes. We believe that openness will help us reach our goal faster and with more impact.
